Sunshine Award!!

My dear friend Donna, from Distressed Donna Down Home was so kind to pass me the Sunshine Award!
I am flattered, to say the least! THANK YOU, Donna!
I can see why you received the Sunshine Award, you are always cheerful and supportive in your comments to me!

The Sunshine Award promotes bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the Blogsphere! To be worthy, one must answer ten questions so others can know a little more about you and pass along the award to ten other bloggers.

Brace yourself, here is some info about moi!

1.  Favorite color Oh, shoot! WHITE, if we are talking about decoration... GRAY to wear... I am BORIIING like that!!!

2.  Favorite animal?  My first thought would be HORSE. I guess girls have a fascination for horses?? But I am crazy about my dogs Enzo(a Sheltie) and Axel(German Shepherd).

3.  Favorite number? 12! Me, my brother, my son and my niece were all born on a 12!

4.  Favorite drink?   I'm so boring... Diet PEPSI, NO ice, with lime, pleeease!!!

5.  Facebook or Twitter? Facebook!

6.  Good book or good movie? I am into BRAINLESS kind of movies, the ones that make you laugh... I want to rest my brain... SO, comedies! I loved Hall Pass!!! LOL!!! I know, don't hate me, I can be kind of "crude" in my movie taste... perhaps because I have a son who made me watch every stupid teenager movie out there???!!!

7.  My passionCooking and antiques! I have to say that I also LOVE helping people. If you say you have a party to organize... I just can't keep my mouth shut! I have to volunteer to help!!'

8.  Giving or getting presents?  Giving. Specially to children!

9.  Favorite day?  I absolutely LOVE Thursdays. Always have! I am not sure if it is because is only one day from the weekend? 

10. Favorite flower? Daisies! This was my favourite flower growing up. Now I developed a taste for Roses and a passion for Peonies...

I would like to pass this award to amazing bloggers who have been so supportive of me!
It was VERY difficult to pick only ten, I have been so lucky to have so many amazing blogging friends!

      I have been out of my scene (lol) for a while because my mom was here for 20 days. Since she left with our friend Maria I have been doing laundry, LOL!
      I can't wait to do some painting and baking!

  7. My dearest Claudine, Congratulations on your award. Your blog is wonderful and you are always so positive and supportive. We share the same favorite flower. I adore the simplicity of the daisy. You keep saying that you are boring, I beg to differ. . . you are a total sweetie pie.

    Thank you so much for thinking that my blog also deserves an award. I'm afraid that I do this for fun and not for awards. So thank you from the bottom of my heart, but I just don't have the time to go through all the steps. You made my day, just by liking the projects that I post here. Have an absolutely incredible week, Connie :)

    1. Dear Connie!!!
      You are always so kind to me, too!!!
      Do not worry about not writing a post about it!
      I do appreciate you coming over and commenting!
      Oh, and YES, I should stop saying I am boring, I am FUN, even without alcohol, LOL!!!
      Hugs galore, my friend!

I do try, but it's all new to me. I have no award to give you, but what I am going to do is put your blog on my front page blog list. Thank you for all your encouraging words. Steve
